MCT 40th Edition Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Creative Time 40th Edition Anniversary Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!


For my project today I used the gorgeous new Hello Frame Dies!  I started by just taking a white A2 card base and adding lots of colorful little stars that I made with dies from the 4x4 Journal Die + More.


Then I used the Stitched Journal Die to make a base for my colorful frame here.  I cut the Hello Frame Die in three colors:  green, yellow, and aqua.  Then I used the 3 Star Stitched Dies to cut stars out of the aqua and yellow pieces.  I cut more stars out of purple, aqua, and pink cardstock and stamped them with the coordinating stamps from the You Are Fabulous stamp set.  Then I was ready to cover the entire base that I'd made with the Stitched Journal Die with adhesive so that I could put together all of the little pieces, starting with the green frame, and ending with the stars.

Here's a closer look at the Hello Frame Dies.  It is available for purchase now in the My Creative Time Store


For our "Freebie" stamp for this release, we are giving away this ADORABLE stamp, "Wishing You" to the FIRST 150 shoppers!  Yep, you heard that right, this stamp will go to the FIRST 150 shoppers for FREE!  You do NOT have to add it to your cart; Emma and her shipping crew will automatically include it in your package, but ONLY to the first 150 shoppers!  IF you happen to come through AFTER the 150th shopper, no worries because this will be available for sale! Emma knows there will be questions on whether YOU made the first 150.  After the first 150 shoppers come through, then you will see this set available for purchase along with the new release items!
